American Journalism is the official publication of the American Journalism Historians Association. Peer reviewed and published quarterly, the journal concerns itself with media history in all national and transnational contexts. It publishes articles, essays, book reviews, and reviews of digital media. American Journalism welcomes articles that treat the history of communication in general; the history of journalism; the history of broadcasting, advertising and public relations; the history of media outside the United States; and theoretical issues in the literature or methods of media history. The journal intends to provide its readers with new knowledge about media history and to foster innovative approaches to the study of media history.
